French Newspaper Gunman Suspect Arrested

French Newspaper 'Gunman' Arrested

The man suspected of carrying out a shooting at a French newspaper has been arrested.

The capture follows a city-wide manhunt after the gunman opened fire at the reception of the Paris building of left-wing newspaper Libération, injuring a photographer earlier this week.

The suspect later opened fire at a second building, and carjacked a terrified man near the Champs-Elysées.

The alleged perpetrator entered the lobby of the newspaper on Monday, around 10:15am, and opened fire before fleeing.

The photographer's assistant, aged 27, remains in a serious condition, shot in the chest and stomach, Liberation reported.
